I just don't want you to ever have to use it.
We have or had ICBM's called peace Keepers, it's kind of the same thing for me.
Oh no! Here we go again. Just because the sign reads, ' donuts' , doesn't mean they are not ' doughnut's '! :-)

you're the only one.
Paige and Meghan / Megan are all from the Celtic language and mean Pagan, more commonly used today as Margaret.
I have a Paige and Meghan named for my mother Margaret.
Oddly if you are Catholic, Meghan is an acceptable Christian name for baptism where Paige is not. You need another name for baptism as you need another name for Confirmation.
I've seen dreadful misspellings of names on birth forms in the maternity wing. Nurses ask if that is how you want it spelled. To many say yes without questioning the spelling. A wonderful example is Lushous for Luscious.. Lushous Pousse a football player for Illinois State a half a dozen years ago. View Comment
@ Irish Girl:
You don't know me, don't speak for me or form abstracts from my words with Paige, or assume we are ' buddies ;.
Paige and I have more opposing views than we do similar.
What we do have is a strong respect for others and when we come to an impasse, we agree to disagree.
Paige has a good working knowledge as her base for her statements and the countenance to use her intellect over her emotions.
She probably doesn't own the ability for road rage as she never has does any flaming here.
What Paige and I do have is a mutual enjoyment of doughnuts. View Comment
I'd like to discount the story from the U.K. for more than one reason.
Anyway, did you notice it was a burglar not a robber? Robber's have guns.
So her .357 went up against an unarmed man.
That was June
An Indiana woman held a drunken home intruder at gunpoint until the police arrived. Normally, we love to hear stories of gun owners trumping stupid criminals, but more than anything else this one looks like it was all just a simple mistake
Lacks intention crime
That was May
Police arrested the intruder, Bruce Linson, 22, and an alleged accomplice, Tyler Robart, 20, both of Fremont. They were booked into the Douglas County Jail on suspicion of burglary
That was April
One of the most common and persuasive arguments against gun control is that guns offer a means with which good guys can protect themselves from bad guys.
In practice, unfortunately, the guns that good guys own to protect themselves from bad guys too often end up killing the good guys' kids or wives or the good guys themselves (either via suicide, accident, or, in some cases, because they're grabbed by the bad guys and used against the good guys). Or, as in the case of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, the guns kill people who the good guys think are bad guys but who aren't actually bad guys
Yeah that's what most of us thing Paige
That was March
A Nederland homeowner woke up to an intruder in his home on the 100 block of Ave. D Saturday night and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
Investigators say the suspect was not very smart, he shattered the front door made of glass and pulled out a knife as a weapon.
Neighbors are using the homeowner's quick thinking as a lesson learned, in the normally quiet neighborhood.
"God no! I've been here 20 years now and this is the first incidence that has happened here in this area." neighbor Michael Mitchell said.
He lives just two doors down from where the invasion happened.
It's Texas he must be the only one using a knife. You can't fix stupid.
That was February.
The mother of nine year-old twins noticed movement outside of her home as she glanced downward through a window in her upstairs office. Immediately alarmed, she moved closer to the window to get a clearer view and there she saw a strange man peering intently through the downstairs window into her home.
Her thoughts going immediately to the safety of her children, she urgently pulled the.38 caliber revolver from its hiding place and surged into the other room to gather the twins. Terrified, she called her husband and corralled her children into an attic crawl space just as the sound of a crash reverberated through her home.
The terrifying intruder was now in the home with both her and her young.
As the intruder searched throughout the home, it became obvious that the man was not seeking their property so much as he was seeking either her or her children for something even more nefarious. She cocked the revolver as the sound of the man grew closer; she shushed her children as she urgently whispered to her husband.
As the door knob turned, the delicate woman's thoughts flew through all of the possibilities and all of the possible outcomes. None of them were pleasant, but as terror surged though her, another feeling took over. A mixture of outrage coalesced with the fury of a mother's cold rage at the threat to the thing that meant more to her than anything else in the world.
Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder
Time slowed down painfully as the door creaked open; now the man was before her, a large shadow standing in the doorway with malice oozing from his silhouette. She said nothing, but gasped as the terror within her surged into and embraced the evil man. Too late, he shockingly recognized what was happening.
The hunter had just become the quarry.
Staring into his face, trembling only a little, was the cold steel of a .38 caliber revolver, and it was not afraid. As he jerked forward towards the woman and her brood, the weapon spit fire into his face and the stunned invader fell backward. Still moving, the woman came forward as the weapon barked repeatedly.
She stood over the man now, as the stricken predator begged for her to stop shooting. Still terrified, the woman's thoughts flew to how many bullets it would take to still the man's movement and exonerate the safety of her children.
The weapon's last round crushed into the intruder's face, and then a series of disconcerting steel clicks began. After six shots, the big man was still able to move, albeit not too well. Now the heroine's strategy changed, she grabbed her kids and ducked out of the tight space. As she charged out of the house and over to her neighbor's home, the big man, his face and neck ruined, staggered out of the home and into his car.
He only a got a few hundred yards before crashing into a tree.
Again, unarmed intruder
Mother lock your doors
They state revolver but that's not what's shown
it the photo. Of course it's the Examiner.
That was January.
One a month
One is from the U/K.
one incident the person had a knife.
At 800,00 a year there should be at least 66,000 better stories you could relate per month.
I certainly am aware of all types of search engines and accelerators.
The problem for many is the extrapolation and comprehension of the derived data and how they process it in their own minds let alone compiling the facts for a few not able to enjoy the results.
Some people believe that it is impossible to convert a semi to full auto with just a small at home machine shop and instructions off the internet.
I'm not very smart at all. One of the most detracting things about having a double masters from NYU is that my scope is so limited and so much went past me while I was raising kids and going to university. Not very smart at all except about a limited and now outdated knowledge of a very few specific things.
Thanks for you input and at keeping my feet on the ground and you giving up those lofty goals of a G.E.D. View Comment
And while they had classroom lessons on firearms( I believe it still exists in many places. there are a lot of high school rifle clubs. maybe not as many as there was a while ago) we here in the 21st century living in town have drivers ed. Amish kids know how to plant from seed and sheep on some Pakistani plateau were not affected by the Y2K scare. There are places in the world that have never heard of or seen an oyster and we use to trade the Russians oysters for caviar.
There was a tight rope walking bagpiper in central park
there was steam rising up from the ground
He wore his cape out after dark..

Please understand I don't want anyone to take away your gun(s).
I'm all for you having a weapon, it's what helps you sleep at night.
I'd like a flame thrower but I think it's an illegal 'fire 'arm.
About your 250,000. It truly boils down to one sixth of that and that 1/6th used their weapon against an unarmed person(s), half of which were fleeing at the time. Don't ask me to prove myself. Do some True Independent reading.
Paige offered me something to read and I guess because I'm on the other side of the fence I found facts and figures that support my stance, not hers and if nothing else it was from a study that ended in 1993. It began with 2.5 million and quickly diluted to 800,000 and diluted again and again as parameters were defined.
I know your thought on only the bad men will have guns then. If they shoot themselves I don't care. It's the good guys that really do not need a gun that end up living with the thought of a lost family member through careless that I do care about, much more.
I hope you never have to pull the trigger. I have and I still have those images in my head. Perhaps that's why I have no interest in the personal family images of mangled minor children in a heap of blood and flesh in the back corner of a classroom..
Having the right to something and exercising that right needs to be balanced in justice.
I'm sure you are going nuts over the government tracking all of Verizon customers calls and texts. I am to on a purist level but because I know it can only affect me in a positive way, I'm almost alright with it.
Have a good day and stay out of trouble. View Comment
so no one knows,
I moved here in 76. Own my home since 83.
From 76 easily past 86 when I towed my boat home from Vets Park Ramp,(after 11PM) I'd leave my car in first gear at red lights, until I got to the I-95 underpass, because drug dealers and hookers would walk right up to the door window. I was afraid to go around the other way towards Van Zant.
By 90 or 95 I began to go out in SoNo. Places like Amber Jack's and O'Neil's. To tell you the truth the customers in Ed's Place were not all that bad. I played pool there and at the V.F.W. on High St.
I've gone to the Brew House since it opened and the Lighthouse before it turned into Ash Creek
Jeff's Cuisine shut down and it was no surprise to me.
Is the Loft still open? The Ginger Man is thriving.
There is more than one reason one place thrives and another has to close.
I spent a fortune at the Bead Shop for beads and ceramic classes and kids parties.
The store you are talking about might have had a great front window, maybe that's his forte`. My dad (Yale grad ) was a window dresser in Boston before WWII. If he were alive today he would mention who is and is not going to do well with a certain type of business on a certain side of the street
I probably did enjoy his shop front window but the Jesuits failed to explain the importance of signage to him. I cannot visualize the the shop sign right now and I have the name in my head. I've been in at least half the p[laces on both sides of that block for 30+ years.
Sometimes Location is Key, most of the time really. I don't think restaurants not opening til dinner or clubs getting out at 2AM interfered with his business. The shear fact that there are just so many Christmas knickknacks a home can have or use, maybe he saturated the market after 29 years and of course my daughters and their grandmothers shopping habits are eons apart.
We can all point fingers and place blame elsewhere.
All 3 of my children went to Norwalk public schools. One got scholarships during her stay at UCONN and another got a full 4 year academic ride at the Univ. of New Hampshire. So apparently it's not the schools here in town not teaching the kids. My 2002 and 03 kids excelled wonderfully at Norwalk Schools.
I dealt with the Jesuits but truthfully it was nuns that prepared me for Parris Island. In 68 I had a draft deferment but it wasn't because I was in college it was because Norden's offered me a job. Maybe if I stayed in Public schools I would have gone to University.
Sometimes having a Specialty Business you need to keep your feet moving and change locale to accommodate your prospective customers.
Blaming Dick Moccia does not stand alone as a reason to go out of business.
I worked in the same business and the same building for 30 years but I re-invented myself in several roles while there. I left to retire at 51. 12+ years later I'm still here in Norwalk in my own home.

I've never heard of the place. Does he advertise? If the restaurants are closed during the day, what's his parking issue! Could be the advent of places like eBay over the last 30 years and his lack of price competitiveness. Perhaps my grandmother would have drooled over his wares but time, people and culture change and his merchandise is seasonal.
Consider the ole record shops as one example. My kids don't even buy CD's, it's all iTunes now. View Comment
@ KenP Jr. " in the same 6 months at least 250,000 citizens used a gun to prevent a crime ". That's about 1,375 / day. Could you post 2 of these events a day, please? Just 1.8% of these events. Occasionally we all see a shop owner chasing a kid with his broom or a bodega operator shooting at an already closed glass shop-front door.
You say it's " a conservative govt statistic ". This should prove easy for you View Comment
I volunteer to go to the bathroom, drive to a movie, take a dip in the pool. I won't volunteer to be gunned down dead by a stranger. Do you see the Apples and Orange's in your flawed argument supporting gun ownership? View Comment
Please ask your legislators to take marijuana off the criminal market and tax and regulate it similarly to alcohol.

' Street Pot ',probably does destroy the brain at a much accelerated rate because it is usually laced with warfarin or formaldehyde or both plus other things.
Regulated, cultivated, tested pot would pose much less a detriment to the brain..

Connecticut decriminalizes possession of marijuana
Possession of a half-ounce or less of marijuana is a civil violation in Connecticut, punishable by a fine of up to $150. It is not a jailable offense. Subsequent offenses are subject to increased fines of $200-$500, and upon a third violation, offenders are referred to a drug awareness program. Most importantly though, those accused of being in possession are not arrested or saddled with a criminal record. In addition to the fine, anyone under 21 who is found in possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana faces a 60-day suspension of his or her driver's license.
